The map above shows how you can join and leave the new bypass, and which junctions have been renumbered.
What to expect:
- At junctions, it is not always possible to join or leave the new road in all directions. This is to help discourage long distance traffic from using smaller, unsuitable roads through local communities.
- All A14 junctions east of and including Girton, as well as the A1 junctions, will maintain their existing junction numbers.
- Drivers travelling eastbound on the new bypass will still have to join a section of 40mph, narrow lanes roadworks from the Swavesey junction. Please look out for the signs as you approach.
- Slow moving vehicles are prohibited from using the new bypass and will be directed to alternative local access roads.
- Variable speed limits displayed on overhead gantries will help to reduce congestion and ensure safety.
What happens next?
The upgraded section of the A1 between Alconbury and Buckden opened earlier this year, which means that the western section of the upgraded A14 is now complete.
Work on the rest of the project, between Swavesey and Milton, continues and is on schedule to be completed as planned by December 2020. The work Highways are carrying out at Huntingdon including the removal of the old viaduct over the railway line, will complete after this. For more information on this project, please visit here.
